Rumour: Apex Legends Map Leaked Ahead of Reveal Stream

See above. Despite Xbox One and PC games often being among the first to take the cross-platform baby steps for any given game, there are now no plans in place for that to happen in Apex Legends.

Design Director Mackey McCandlish said to VG247 that "This is the game being made by the Titanfall team, Apex Legends..."

That last bit comes as a surprise to everyone who caught wind of Apex Legends over the weekend and just figured Respawn also had an eventual sequel up its sleeve alongside Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Apex Legends is set in the Titanfall universe, only it doesn't feature the giant mechs (Titans) which gave the series its name and helped to differentiate the sci-fi first person shooter from its contemporaries. If you're starting to get a little tired over Fortnite or PUBG, this may be the alternative battle royale game for you. The game is a squad-based battle royale with the classic Respawn flair. In Fortnite or PUBG, you can choose the rough location of your paradrop but can't control it very well.

EA and Respawn have also revealed the game's official PC system requirements that you can find below.

Apex Legends' Xbox One controller setup screen. Legends include Bloodhound, a tracker who can see recent enemy activity on the map; Lifeline, a battlefield medic who can shield teammates and bring them back from the brink of death. The game's focus appears to be on teamwork and balancing the squad. That means gameplay will be split up into seasons, and at the start of each new one, players will have the option to pay for a Battle Pass, which in turn allows them to unlock new cosmetics as they play. Additional seasons will be released in the future, with different themes and new content as well as Legends, skins, and weapons.
